Emily's Blog - Bond Day
4th January 2019
Today I started ‘The Brace Journey’. As you can see from the images my main concerns are the crowding in my top six teeth, I also have an increased overjet (which affects the way the teeth bite together, my top teeth protrude).
Dr Cure suggested that the most beneficial appliance for my case would be a custom made Insignia self-ligating appliance. I chose to have the upper six teeth made with clear brackets as these are the only teeth that show in my ‘smile line’.
For the braces to be fitted it took just under an hour, and it was completely painless! I also had ‘bite turbo’s fitted on my upper molars (circled) to ensure I wasn’t biting on to any brackets which could cause them to come off.
